Vaping has become increasingly popular among school-aged children and teens in recent years.
National data released in September by the FDA and the CDC showed that more than 2 million middle- and high-school students had tried vaping at least once in the previous 30 days. Of those users, nearly a quarter reported daily use of e-cigarettes or vaping devices.
Here in Cambria County, youth vaping statistics are even more stark. Across all age groups, a quarter of respondents said they had used a vape or e-cigarette in the previous 30 days, including almost 45% of the county’s high school seniors and nearly a third of responding 10th graders.
